Model is beautiful...I don't care for the framing of her in this photo though...too much dead center. I also think she needs to be farther away from the backdrop to keep the shadows of the light stand and model from spilling onto BG.

I am a sucker for pretty hair and hers is beautiful.



my $.02 worth...

I'd come in a little tighter. The black lines across her are hard to make out too. Is that something you meant to do? If so, I would carry across her whole body.

I was trying to get the blinds to create shadow across her body but I didn't get it. Any ideas?

Also Emily is a first time model and she was a very good sport. This was a learning exercise for me and she was up for anything. Thanks Emily!

I could tell that's what you were trying to do. But I think that the effect is lost when you shoot it low key and then don't get the shadows going across her whole body.

Here's the nice thing about photography. Get her back in front of your camera and try again [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The way I usually get good results of lines across the body is to use a set of blinds about 2 - 3 feet from the model and a single hotlight (a movie camera light gives a nice warm effect) aiming through them so I can adjust the blind opening to get the desired effect. Sorry that I don't have a sample on line to show you but I'll try to find one later and post.

you were shooting thru the blinds with a softbox or umbrella. Try using a point source light with out the softening modifier. Remember sunny day hard shadows cloudy day soft. By the way I'm glad to see another female photographer here on the board. You need to get that girl to put up a page here if she'd like to work with others. She definately has a great look.

Zaria and I shot these tegether so I can give you more info. We did use a strobe light, but we did not use an unbrella or anything else. I turned the strobe around to face the blinds, turned it up on high and pointed it straight through the blinds. Here is one of mine after some editing to try to bring out the lines more.


Comments always apreciated!!

a reflector or some sort of light concentrator or was it bare bulb? If the latter then the effect was the same as a very large reflector. If you did use a reflector it would have to be one meant to focus the light rather one meant to disperse. Your modeling light should give you a hint as to the outcome. Someone mentioned using Hot lights as spots this would work best as you can see exactly what you're going to get.

We did have the modeling light on and a small reflector just around the bulb. We noticed the further away we moved the blinds, the more shadows we got, but were limited on space so we couldn't go back any further. I think next time I might try putting the light up higher and shooting down through the blinds.

Thanks for the help,
Cinnamon
